Just before graduating from high school, two best friends realize that for the sake of straight-A’s they have missed out all the fun. So, the two girls decide to cram their four lost years of fun into one night. One of the girls happens to have come out as a lesbian some time in the past, and her sexuality is something that naturally exists in the plot of the film. There is no big fat coming out story in this movie, just a girl who happens to like girls and she’s okay with that. The female leads are both amazing and vivid. They can be so relatable, so funny, so tender, while managing to stay away from stereotypes. The characters have depth, though non pretentious one. They are goofy, but not ridiculous. Serious, but not exaggerating. They’re a perfect blend of realistic features, resulting in a completely three dimensional being, unlike from what we have gotten used to watch in movies. Their relatability occurs because they portray what each person may conclude of: many levels, some of fun, some of cringe, some of randomness, but all deeply, deeply human.
Beanie Feldstein, who plays one of the two girls, openly identifies as queer.

  1. The characters are already out and the story has nothing do to with their queerness save for the love interest, it also turns the stereotypes of hot girls and “tomboys” completely on its head.
